Michael Vela

Hand #142: Christian Harder found {A-Clubs}{Q-Spades} and raised his button to 350,000. Small blind Cliff Josephy called with {K-Diamonds}{J-Hearts} before big blind Michael Vela shoved for 1,485,000 holding {A-Hearts}{6-Hearts}.

Harder tanked for a bit and called. Josephy thought about it for some minutes before he too called.

With now 4,515,000 in the middle, Vela could be back in it if he somehow would overcome his disadvantage.

"I'm checking dark for the first time in my life" Josephy said.

The flop came {6-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}, pairing Vela. Harder checked behind and they both checked the {3-Hearts} on the turn and {4-Diamonds} on the river as well.

"Somebody has to got have a diamond!" Vela said.

Vela got the bad news soon enough as Josephy showed the diamond he had to make his flush.

"What an ugly way to go" Vela said.

"It's going to be boring here now" Josephy said while shaking hands with the third place finisher. Michael Vela out in third place for $259,980. The two remaining players, Christian Harder (12 million) and Cliff Josephy (9 million) are guaranteed $353,100 and will battle for that first place prize of $480,012 when they return from the short impromptu break.
